Independent prescribing streamlines patient care
3rd Dec 2010
Independent prescribing streamlines patient care.
The Department of Health published 'Allied health professions prescribing and medicines supply mechanisms scoping project.' The report recommended that a further consultation be undertaken to advance physiotherapists and podiatrists to independent prescribing rights. Physiotherapists currently have access to supplementary prescribing courses, but an update course, which would elevate them to independent prescribers, has been proposed.
A DH engagement exercise on independent prescribing is currently underway. To support this consultation, add your views at http://tinyurl.com/35qd38k

We are sad to report the death on Saturday 6th November of Peter Huijbregts.
"Peter was a physical therapist of Dutch origin but for many years based in British Columbia, Canada. To me, he epitomised a modern, scientific and forward thinking manual therapist, and a fantastic human being. I first met him in Vancouver in 2007. I had been communicating with him regarding some work related to the Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapeutics, for which he was editor, for some months prior to this. I was immediately taken with Peter's support, encouragement, warmth and love for his work, family and Canada. He was really proud that WCPT was in his home state, and went out of his way to welcome me, and many others, to British Columbia. As a manual therapist, his worked always remained clinical. However, he authored numerous book chapters, over 40 articles, and his own book on myofascial trigger points, with Jan Dommerholt. He also has a, now posthumous, book yet to be realised on the evidence for neck and arm pain, written with Cesar Fernandez-de-las-Penas and Josh Cleland. He was editor for JMMT between 2004 and 2007, and also edited the Current Topics in Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Medicine series, in addition to various other journal appointments. He gained his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2001 and held an Assistant Professor post at the University of St Augustine since 2002. His clinical work continued in practices throughout British Columbia. Peter Huijbregts was a great physical therapist. Peter was 44 years old and died in his sleep on Saturday 6th November 2010".
Interested in Musculoskeletal Research?

INTERESTED IN MUSCULOSKELETAL RESEARCH?
If yes then the South East National Physiotherapy Research Network (SE NPRN) Musculoskeletal Interest Group would like to hear from you.
The MSK hub can provide a network to support, facilitate and develop common areas of interest for research and audit. We can either do this by setting up quarterly meetings to meet and discuss potential projects or future projects, offer seminar sessions where local practitioners can disseminate their work or provide opportunities to develop your research & audit skills.
It would help us if you could let us know what you would want and find most useful so we can plan for the future. Please contact the hub facilitators below.
We look forward to hearing from you.

New guidance from the Department of Health suggests that Sports and Exercise Medicine (SEM) Physicians provide better care than ESPs
1st Nov 2010
New guidance from the Department of Health suggests that Sports and Exercise Medicine (SEM) Physicians provide better care than ESPs:
Alternatives practitioners to doctors such as Extended-Scope Physiotherapists (ESP's) exist, however evidence indicates that onward referral rates are much higher, with clinical outcomes equivalent only to a junior doctor standard of care. The benefits of ESP's are that the direct costs are cheaper than a specialist."
